In this study, cryptobenthic communities of fishes and decapod in underwater caves of Tarkhankut peninsula, underwater caves of southwestern Crimea and mussel's farm in Sebastopol were described. Structure and features of cryptobenthic fauna were considered for mussel's settlements and underwater habitat (caves and grottoes), the study of which is extremely complex and are sketchy and incomplete in the Black Sea. In the cryptobenthic fish community of the mussel fouling two new for Crimea fish…

Findings of new and rare fish species in the coastal zone of the Crimea (the Black Sea)

An increase in the species composition of ichthyofauna off the Black Sea coasts of the Crimea results from the on-going process of mediterranization—the invasion in the estuary of freshwater tolerant species at the expense of accidental species that penetrated here either independently or with ballast waters.

The importance of underwater photography in detecting cryptobenthic species: new in situ records of some gobies (Teleostei: Gobiidae) from Italian Seas with ecological notes

New records of 5 species of cryptobenthic gobies for Italy (Mediterranean Sea) are presented, including some ecological information collected by scuba divers and underwater photographers.

Ontogenetic Shifts in Patterns of Microhabitat Utilization in the Small-headed Clingfish, Apletodon Dentatus (Gobiesocidae)

There was a differential utilization of the microhabitats, with small juveniles recruiting to algal turfs, intermediate individuals found in association with the sea urchins Paracentrotus lividus and Sphaerechinus granularis and larger fish occurring mainly in boulders.
